Facilitator Development Workshop (FDW)

Date(s): Monday, June 16 - Friday, June 20 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Location: UFV Abbotsford Campus

Facilitator Development Workshop (FDW):

  • June 16-20, 2025, Abbotsford campus

The Facilitator Development Workshop (FDW) is the second level of training within the Instructional Skills Workshop program. Building on ISW experiences around teaching effectiveness, the FDW offers participants the opportunity to build facilitation skills within the ISW context.  Participants deliver mini-lessons and receive peer-feedback but also manage the feedback process.  This experiential learning approach provides space to learn new facilitation approaches and receive feedback from colleagues.

Unlike the Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW), which is a developmental and completion only workshop, the Facilitator Development Workshop (FDW) is a competency-based certification workshop. Individuals who wish to be certified in an FDW must first complete an ISW. Following that, the steps that participants who wish to become ISW Facilitators are required to complete for certification may vary but will be communicated to participants. Certification requirements depend on:

  • The prior experience of the participant, and
  • The FDW Training Team’s assessment of the performance of the participant during the FDW with respect to:
    • Appropriate facilitation knowledge and skills
    • Ability to demonstrate and genuinely communicate to ISW participants the values and principles inherent to the ISW approach to professional development.

Following completion of the FDW, the Trainers will provide the supporting institution details of the completion requirements for each participant.  Completion of these requirements is a necessary step in participant registration with the ISW Network.

Location: The University of the Fraser Valley, Abbotsford Campus, Room G124.
Format: in-person.
Cost: $800/person. No cost for UFV employees.
